JAI 441

This week at Just Add Ink, there is an inspiration challenge.

It's such a pretty photo. What I took from it were the soft, pastel colourings with just a touch of a neutral as well as the soft lines. I decided that these translated to Petal Pink, Pool Party and a touch of Highland Heather and Crumb Cake.

I've used two new bundles for this card - I can't help it - still playing with new gear.😀
The Dear Doily bundle might yet turn out to be my favourite. I cut one of the lovely doilies then used it as a stencil to sponge on the Petal Pink background.

I coloured the lavender stem stamp directly with Stampin' Write markers then cut them out.
The Crumb Cake has been embossed using the Subtle folder to give it the texture of linen ribbon and the lacy edge is also from the Doily Builder thinlits.

For the greeting, I turned to the Well Said bundle: so, so many sentiment choices there! Despite the pretty colouring, this card kept telling me it was meant to be a sympathy card so that's what I did.

I cut 'sympathy' twice, once in Petal Pink and once in Highland Heather which peeps out just a touch.

Thanks, JAI team, for a great challenge!
